Getting the Tree

We used to walk out the door and our property bordered on a Christmas Tree Farm so we would harness up the sleds load them with kids and we would be off for a Saturday AM of tree selection. Well all that ended when the farmer decided to sell his property into a subdivision. We then decided to go to Stokoes Farm . That has been our destination lately. We take a tractor ride out to the trees cut one down ride the tractor back get the tree tied and into the car then go for Hot cocoa and a cookie, visit the animals, reindeer, stand near the bonfire, check out the Charlie Brown trees, the gift shop, the hay maze and this huge slide which is not always open. Then we load up the car , have a homemade cookie for the ride home and usually homemade Hot cocoa when we get there- this year the mama was all out of milk- imagine that! So no homemade Hot cocoa!eek
